A summer weekend pop-up with a tartan twist, it’s all about the best of Scottish produce, smokin’ venison, fresh fish, gin and whisky cocktails and great beer at Dram & Smoke – set in a working steelyard in Vauxhall.
There is a six course tasting menu with a custom-built whisky barrel smoker taking centre stage in creating a number of dishes that guests receive as part of their £40 ticket. This also includes a welcome cocktail on arrival and an Innis & Gunn beer served alongside the star of the show, smokin’ venison haunch with a light pearl barley salad and bramble dressing. Other Scottish classics include haggis bon bons, potted smoked mackerel, and a creamy Cullen Skink soup shooter. The oft-maligned deep-fried Mars Bar even gets a look-in when dessert rolls around.
Behind a clandestine doorway a short distance from Vauxhall Underground, the rough and ready, semi-outdoor backdrop of the Dram & Smoke steelyard lends itself perfectly to a party atmosphere that’s further instilled with the help of some top tunes.
Dram & Smoke pops up every Friday and Saturday from 7.30pm and on Sundays from 2pm before disappearing until the following weekend.
